The band formed in September of 2018 for a battle of the bands at their school. They offer a unique music style that mixes indie, jazz and rock to create their own special sound. The band as performers reflect on their young looks by breaking social norms for what is deemed ‘manly’ whilst on stage and in every day life. They have released various demos onto Bandcamp however their debut single ‘Kids’ was released onto Spotify in December 20th of 2019. ‘Kids’ shines a light on fragile masculinity in today’s youth and tackles the idea that boys should not be ashamed to be flamboyant. Following the success of Kids the band recorded 4 other songs to go along with Kids in an EP now called ‘Dying Together’.

This is abuzz! Maxed out with energy that the band don't try to contain, letting everything run wild.

it takes guts to tackle a topic this sensitive and I think you've done a great job, TFJ. plenty of the lyrics are hard to hear, but that's exactly why songwriting like this (esp. from such a band still in high school) is so important. that line "cause I'm not offering any real advice, I'm just a child" struck a particular chord with me.
